The series includes two models, Realme 9 Pro and Pro+. Both will support 5G networks.
According to previous leaks, the Realme 9 Pro will sport a Snapdragon 695 5G processor. Whereas, the Pro+ will come with a more powerful MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. In India, where they are going to land immediately after the global launch, the phones will be available in three storage configurations.
For instance, the Realme 9 Pro will have 4GB RAM+128GB, 6GB RAM+128GB, and 8GB RAM+128GB storage options. Other than that, the phone will feature a 6.59-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. As for the Pro+ version, it will come with a smaller display of 6.43 inches. This AMOLED screen will have a 90Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution.
On the back, the Realme 9 Pro will have a triple camera module. It will consist of a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide angle lens, and a 2MP macro sensor. The 16MP selfie shooter will be placed in the hole on the front.
The 5000mAh battery is expected to support 33W fast charging.
However, the Realme 9 Pro+ will feature a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP macro sensor. The selfie camera will have the same resolution as that of the Pro version. But this version will pack a 4500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging.
Lastly, both phones will run Android 12 with UI 3.0 on top.
Recently, the Pro + version appeared in GeekBench. The benchmarks screenshot mainly confirmed what we knew about it. Say, we learned that the Realme 9 Pro+ (RMX3393) will come with an octa-core Dimensity 920 chip, which will also be paired with 8 GB of RAM. But this is only one model that was spotted on the benchmark platform. We mean there should be more variants. The 9 Pro+ 5G showed Android 12 straight out of the box with Realme UI 3.0 on top. This is a bit surprising. We just recall the Realme 9i that came with the outdated Android 11 version and Realme UI 2.0.
Anyway, in Geekbench, our protagonist scored 818 points in the single-core test and 2,324 in the multi-core test. In this sense, we should say that the Dimensity 920 is slightly tweaked Dimensity 900 with 2 x ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.5 GHz, and 6 x ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2 GHz.
